Minar gets six years for enticing teen for sex

A former Indiana college president will be behind bars for six years and be under extended supervision for another six years after trying to have sex with who he believed was a 15-year-old boy two years ago.


Judge David Weber handed down the sentence earlier this week after 58-year-old Thomas Minar pleaded no contest to one count of child enticement and three counts of possession of child pornography in March. Single counts of using a computer to facilitate a child sex crime and exposing a child to harmful material, along with nine other charges of possession of child pornography, were dismissed as a part of the plea deal.


In 2020, Minar was the president of Franklin College when he was caught trying to meet with a boy in Sturgeon Bay for a sexual encounter, only to learn that he had been conversing with a Sturgeon Bay Police officer.
